This place is awesome. I felt like I was on a treasure hunt the entire time I was browsing. The shelves are just kind of haphazardly stocked with a good variety of brews. I found a few rarer things still in the boxes on a bottom shelf. Peabodyís has quite a few things that are difficult to locate in the area. Their own Appalachain ale is cheaper than Bud by the case, I had to pick up a couple just to give it a try. The staff was very helpful and curteous during my visit. Obviously this place is absolutely mandatory for a beer lover who visits little Boone.

Excellent selection. Fantastic service. I popped in a second time to see if they had any new deliveries since my last visit and they immediately recognized me and showed me everything new that came in. The first day they were equally as intentive, making suggestions and helping me get my purchase to the car. A kick ass beer shop, one of the better ones Iíve been to. A must stop.

I stopped in here while visiting a relative who lives just outside of Boone. Its a well stocked liquor store with a very solid beer selection. Service was great - I told them that I was from out of the state & looking for some local hoppy beers & they pointed some out to me. They also broke up a 6 pack of Duck Rabbit Imperial Stout when asked. Prices seemed good for most things, but some of the items on the "vintage" shelf seemed expensive but maybe that is what aged beers go for down there.

Visited: 5/9/11. Spent a day in the mountains with my family and made it a point to stop by the famous Peabodyís. As I walked in, I was promptly greeted by the guy behind the register and asked if I needed any help. Good service already. The beer section is in the back right side of the store, past all the wine. First thing I see is a nice rack of vintage brews. They had a good selection of aged beers at fairly reasonable prices. The beer is organized well, with a nice Belgian section, NC section, European section, and a large section of coolers with chilled singles, bombers, growlers, and sixers. Very extensive selection. Iíd be hard-pressed to not find something Iíd want there. Some of the prices are higher than Iím used to, but some were actually lower. I was approached by the aforementioned employee, and asked again if I needed some help. We chatted beer for a bit. Iím really glad I stopped. Definitely one of the best stores in the state, and by far the best store in the area.

beer store in boone. there is alot of beers here, including beers that are hard to find in the other stores. avery beers, left hand, lost coast, alot of NC brews too. they have cheese and a small cigar selection. they also have wine, but i never look at it because they have beers. i have never talked to the staff other than the check out, so i dont know if they know their stuff about beer or not. no need to talk to them if you know yourself, correct?

this is by far the best beer store ive run across in north carolina. the guys that work there are awesome, and they all know thier stuff about beer. they are starting to get in a few belgians and they have a constantly updated supply of beer. their wine selection is top notch for this town as well. too bad i am graduating, i am going to miss my (almost daily) runs to peabodys. cheers

Peabodyís has steadily improved over the years. Everyone that works there is very knowlegeable about beer, and will to talk with you about it. Itís always a pleasant experience to shop there. Until recently, their selection has been limited by state law, not their choice. With the passage of the new law in NC allowing up to 15%, they are aggressively adding new beers weekly. It is one of the best beer stores in NC.

Great little store nestled in the mountains. Store has a nice selection even though NC cannot enjoy the BIG beers. Brandon is very knowlegable and a great person to speak too when you enter the store. You wont be disappointed with what they have for where thye are located.

Boone is not a big town but itís apparent that there are beer lovers in the area. Not a very large store and the beer competes with wine for space but I did find some fairly hard to find items and there are a few local gems. Staff was polite and humorous. You have to make a point of looking around every nook and cranny to find everything available. Absolute must if youíre visiting Boone.

Staff is super friendly and knowledgable. Selection is pretty vast for a small town. Wine selection is commendable as well.
